One of the largest retail banks in the U.S. sought to improve customer satisfaction in the call center by eliminating time-consuming processes. Limited by a nonspeech- enabled IVR, the bank was constrained to outdated authentication options, such as PIN numbers and knowledge-based authentication (KBA) questions. Long enrollment processes and authentication challenges were driving call handle times up, causing significant customer frustration. The bank turned to Pindrop for help. Using Pindrop’s multi-factor authentication solutions, the bank confidently moved authentication away from costly agent-based KBA questions to passively authenticating callers within the IVR. This not only reduced call handle times but also improved customer account protection, by assessing every caller for risk before enrollment and authentication.

Bell Canada began an initiative to provide desktop solutions at reduced costs. With 8,000 call center agents, Bell Canada faced hardware attrition and rising costs. Streamlining systems, facilitating outsourcing and increasing capabilities to telecommute would reduce costs while improving service. This would require creating customized workstations for users. Bell Canada approached VMware Partner CGI Group Inc., which provides end-to-end IT and business process services, for a solution.

For many companies, language barriers increase as business globalization becomes the norm rather than the exception. Perhaps a call center agent cannot handle customer contact in an unfamiliar language. Or a manager travels to a face-toface meeting only to sit across a conference table from clients wanting to speak in their own native language. Even within your organization, teams across global geographies must collaborate to achieve collective goals, but language barriers often stand in their way. Meanwhile, HR leaders are tasked with recruiting and retaining top talent and L&D managers must align programs with business goals. Each of these scenarios and areas of responsibility have something in common: A clear need for company-sponsored training to develop employees’ language proficiency so they can engage successfully with colleagues and customers anywhere. Thousands of learners were surveyed about the impact of language training with Rosetta Stone® business solutions.1 Results show

Our client was a large financial institution with millions of customers using a wide range of products. So when customers called the contact center, they could have any query out of a possibility set of 68 categories. They would want investment advice, or ask about their account. Or they would simply want to reset their PIN. The trouble was that the large range of support offered at the contact center meant long and complex phone calls, as customers often found their way through the interactive voice response (VR) system to the wrong agent. They had to be re-routed-often several times- which gave our clients two problems.

One of the biggest dangers in establishing best practices for your contact center is to do so in isolation from your self-service stakeholders. Instead, all customer "touch-points" must be viewed as part of a continuum. Customer touch points include Web Self-Service, Interactive Voice Response, Contact Center Agents, and Face-to-Face transactions. By tracking the interplay between these, you can more easily identify meaningful key performance indicators.

Contact centers have long played a vital role in the insurance industry. Prospects and customers use them to get product information and quotes and then submit applications. Insurance agents and advisors rely on contact centers to tap into expertise and handle business and technical issues. Policyholders and members make inquiries or changes to their policies, or conduct financial transactions. Claimants call in to report accidents and check on the status of their claims. The list could go on, but the meaning is clear. Contact centers are major contributors to many key parts of the insurance business, especially the parts that require direct interaction with customers or agents. As a result, contact centers now play a critical role in an insurer’s journey toward becoming more customer-centric.

When call center agents don’t have access to an EMR, consumer demographic, sociological and other data, nor an understanding of marketing campaigns, agents are inefficient, reactive and unable to personalize interactions with patients and consumers. The disjointed call center experience harms the health system’s ability to find, guide, and keep patients for life. The call center is often the first touch for many prospective healthcare customers, and Scripps Health recognized these challenges. They made the pivot from call center as cost center to strategic lynch pin in their patient experience strategy. Call center agents are now delivering a world-class patient experience as they provide physician referrals, take class registrations, and serve as a clearing house for general information . An added bonus of the shift is they can now integrate outbound calling into campaign efforts, and measure the full impact of marketing efforts and strengthen marketing’s ROI. Get your free copy of
